Product nameUridine 5'-diphospho-N-acetylglucosamine sodium salt, Nucleoside phosphate glycosyl donor
DescriptionNucleoside phosphate glycosyl donor.
Donor substrate for transfer of GlcNAc to the dolichol precursor in the synthesis of N-glycans. Also functions as the source of GlcNAc attached to serine/threonine residues by O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT) in O-GlcNAc signaling.
Chemical nameP'-[2-(Acetylamino)-2-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranosyl] ester uridine 5'-(trihydrogen diphosphate) sodium salt
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store In the Dark. This product is air and light sensitive and impurities can occur as a result of air oxidation or due to metabolism by microbes.
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day.
